Medium growing upright and sprawling rhizomatous species. Rhizomes are very big and woody with leaves usually at the tips. Defoliates in winter under some growing conditions especially outdoors in temperate climates. Unusual in that it usually blooms profusely with bright pink flowers on the bare rhizome tips and then puts out leaves after the flowering is over. Easy to grow and unusual, can be used as a bonsai but can also grow into a large specimen plant.
